NEW RISK ASSESSMENT GUIDANCE

Guidance on new risk assessment requirements has been published by FETA.

A review of the CLP (Classification Labelling and Packaging) Regulations has resulted in all refrigerants being classified as hazardous and requiring full DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulation) risk assessments to be carried out on all projects using refrigerants.

Guidance on these new requirements is available below.
Application specific point of use risk assessments are also being developed.

WORLD REFRIGERATION DAY

26th JUNE 2019

The coolest day of the year takes centre stage during the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution Show, 25 and 26 June at the East of England showground in, Peterborough.

Raising awareness of the huge impact refrigeration, in one form or another, has on modern life to help attract the best candidates into the sector. The food chain, medicines, data centres, smartphones, internet, indoor air quality, sustainable heating methods – all depend on some form of refrigeration to work effectively.

We will be celebrating the world of refrigeration across the globe on this day every year. Come and see us at the REFCOM stand in the Refrigeration Hub to find out how you can help us reach out to the wider public and make sure they are aware of who we are and what we do.
